The repository is no longer available >>>!!!<<< 2020-02-21: no more access to "Environment Climate Data Sweden" >>>!!!<<< The transfer of records from the Environment Climate Data Sweden (ECDS) database to the Swedish National Dataservice (SND) was completed in 2019. SND is a national research infrastructure with a primary function to support the accessibility, preservation, and re-use of research data and related materials. You can search the SND research data portal specifically for Natural Science or Agricultural and Veterinary Sciences datasets. Data descriptions with associated datasets, or a direct reference/URL to data, have been migrated from the ECDS portal to the SND research data portal. Previous links to these data are now automatically directed to an SND catalogue entry. Records in the ECDS catalogue that only contained metadata (ie information that data could be accessed through another portal, e.g. Pangea), now link directly to the portal in question. If you want to make one of those data descriptions searchable in SND’s catalogue, please contact SND on A small number of records were neither migrated to SND nor redirected to external providers, and they redirect. Contact SND on if you want more information about the closing of the ECDS portal and the migration of data descriptions to SND’s research data catalogue.
VertNet is a NSF-funded collaborative project that makes biodiversity data free and available on the web. VertNet is a tool designed to help people discover, capture, and publish biodiversity data. It is also the core of a collaboration between hundreds of biocollections that contribute biodiversity data and work together to improve it. VertNet is an engine for training current and future professionals to use and build upon best practices in data quality, curation, research, and data publishing. Yet, VertNet is still the aggregate of all of the information that it mobilizes. To us, VertNet is all of these things and more.

!! OFFLINE !! A recent computer security audit has revealed security flaws in the legacy HapMap site that require NCBI to take it down immediately. We regret the inconvenience, but we are required to do this. That said, NCBI was planning to decommission this site in the near future anyway (although not quite so suddenly), as the 1,000 genomes (1KG) project has established itself as a research standard for population genetics and genomics. NCBI has observed a decline in usage of the HapMap dataset and website with its available resources over the past five years and it has come to the end of its useful life. The International HapMap Project is a multi-country effort to identify and catalog genetic similarities and differences in human beings. Using the information in the HapMap, researchers will be able to find genes that affect health, disease, and individual responses to medications and environmental factors. The Project is a collaboration among scientists and funding agencies from Japan, the United Kingdom, Canada, China, Nigeria, and the United States. All of the information generated by the Project will be released into the public domain. The goal of the International HapMap Project is to compare the genetic sequences of different individuals to identify chromosomal regions where genetic variants are shared. By making this information freely available, the Project will help biomedical researchers find genes involved in disease and responses to therapeutic drugs. In the initial phase of the Project, genetic data are being gathered from four populations with African, Asian, and European ancestry. Ongoing interactions with members of these populations are addressing potential ethical issues and providing valuable experience in conducting research with identified populations. Public and private organizations in six countries are participating in the International HapMap Project. Data generated by the Project can be downloaded with minimal constraints. The Project officially started with a meeting in October 2002 ( and is expected to take about three years.
